Ever since 5th Avenue South in downtown Naples went through a major renovation in the early 2000s buyers have been given the opportunity to live above the beautiful shops and galleries. There are several options currently on the market directly along 5th Avenue South ranging from single-family to studio apartments. The prices range from the low $600,000 for a 2 bedroom condominium measuring a little over 1,000 square feet to well over $8,000,000 for a newer single-family home close to the beach. The demand for this type of living has spurned residential redevelopment in and around 3rd Street South as well. Several new villas have been introduced to the market recently with asking prices in the mid $2,000,000 range. These types of properties are increasing in popularity as the median age of the Neapolitan decreases and those wanting to live here do not want to take on all the responsibilities of single-family home living. Many downtown areas throughout the United States boast upscale shops, award-winning restaurants, exciting art galleries and fun nighttime entertainment, but very few are only steps away from the pristine, white sugar-sand beaches along the Gulf of Mexico. You can spend the day relaxing on the beach and walk downstairs to your favorite restaurant at night. If you are a boater, the nearby city docks and marinas offer places to dock your boat and a wide range of boating, fishing and sightseeing excursions. Downtown Naples, Florida, is by far one of the best places to live.
